All Saints Moms Group
This is a casual, supportive group for moms to gather in friendship and faith, to encourage a sense of community by enabling both spiritual and social connections. Expectant mothers and those with young children are especially encouraged, but we also need the advice of you experienced moms! We offer monthly meetings, Bible study, playdates, community service projects, social outings and, most of all, support for each other. Annual Registration.

All Saints Women’s Organization (ASWO)
All women of the parish — from young moms to great grandmothers, single and married, working, stay-at-home, and retired — are automatically members of ASWO. Members participate in various activities of faith and fellowship, as well as service projects to benefit our parish. This ministry runs “Help Your Neighbor Sunday” and provides funeral receptions. ASWO’s primary fundraiser is the Hearts and Hands Bazaar held each fall to address the various needs of our All Saints Community. The organization also has eight circles, smaller groups of women working together on special projects and social events throughout the year. ASWO, along with the Ladies Auxiliary of the Knights of Columbus, sponsors the annual Ladies Day of Reflection.

The Fall Festival is a major fellowship event that takes place on the All Saints Church campus each year in September. The Festival is a family-friendly, two-day event with great food, beverages, live entertainment, Bingo, silent auction and carnival games with prizes for children of all ages. The volunteer committee is made up of approximately 30 to 40 individuals who meet regularly during the year to plan, prepare as well as execute the event. Planning begins in February. Meetings are held once a month when possible. During August and September we will usually meet twice a month as we get closer to the festival.
We typically meet in Fellowship Hall on the third Wednesday of the month from January to June and September to December. Our meetings begin at 11:30 a.m., with a catered lunch at 12 p.m. and entertainment from 12:30 to 1:15 p.m. As seniors, we gather together in gratitude and gladness for God’s gifts and graces to refresh our spirit and relationships by sharing a meal and entertainment; reinforce our Catholic faith; and reimagine aging. Reservations are required — therefore we announce each meeting in the bulletin two weeks in advance.

Newcomers Welcome Committee
At All Saints, we wish to make every individual feel a sense of trust and comfort, and for each person to know that they truly belong. The committee strives to make newcomers, and inactive parishioners who are now coming back to the church, feel at home here at All Saints. Volunteers are needed to staff the Welcome Center after weekend Masses, to help with our bi-monthly Newcomers Breakfast, and to welcome every new family that registers.
